The actress behind beloved horror flicks like Halloween is officiating her daughter’s wedding in full World of Warcraft cosplay. Jamie Lee Curtis explains on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live that the whole ceremony is cosplay themed, though it was her daughters who decided she would dress as sorceress Jaina Proudmoore.
A back-and-forth chat between the two starts with Curtis explaining what cosplay is to Kimmel before admitting that getting her costume is proving to be a tad tricky. It turns out that the seamstress that Curtis found on Etsy lives in Russia, so the ensemble has been delayed and may not arrive in time.
Warcraft shenanigans aside, the rest of the chat is pretty wholesome. Curtis is pretty chuffed that her daughter is getting married in her back garden as her other child did. “It’s so much more meaningful,” Curtis says in reply to a joke about a wedding in her garden being cheaper. “Just forgetting all of show-off business — being a parent, having both of your children married in your backyard.”
